The Employee to CEO Project

Leadership Development for Executive and C-Level Women

The Employee to CEO Project’s mission is to disrupt the dismal number of women in C-Level leadership. Founded by Margaret Spence, a global business leader who is committed to building a pipeline of ready-now women leaders who are strategically placed within organizations, so they are ready to advance when key leadership positions are available.

Through our Ten-X Leadership Academy, we offer programs to enhance and develop women leaders. Our cohort of women leaders will inspire each other to grow, find fulfillment in their career, learn the skills necessary to advance, and boldly live the life they want. We offer skills-based workshops for aspiring women leaders. Mentorship and mastermind programs to accelerate career growth. Monthly live and virtual networking events, and we offer executive leadership development coaching for senior-level executives who want to pivot from middle management into executive or C-level leadership.

Through our partnership with multi-national corporations, we also offer women’s leadership development programs, training, strategic planning, facilitation, and succession planning.
